Mmmm Stabbing! in OCC Member's Lounge Posted July 16, 2007 I'm not certain they'd be called missionaries if they didn't try to spread their religion. Perhaps not, but there are many Christian and Catholic groups offering relief in poor countries, and I have a great deal of respect for them. Not that Atheists don't do the same, of course, but you mentioned missionaries. Perhaps missionaries is not the right word to describe these people then. I like how you put that, Dr. Bowtie.
